Electronic House: Cake Boss Bakes High-tech Christmas

by Lisa Montgomery

When we first visited Buddy Valastro, the celebrity baker on the TLC series Cake Boss, he just had his 9,000-square foot home automated (featured in the September 2011 issue). Thanks to the handiwork of brothers Abiose and Chima Gale of 360 Media Innovations in Maplewood, N.J., an Elan g! system manages many mundane tasks for the busy Valastro family. Lights in Buddy’s house turn on and off at certain times of the day. Thermostats adjust according to the family’s schedule. And Buddy and his wife use an app on their iPad to operate an assortment of audio and video gear and view real-time surveillance camera feeds.

Commercial Integrator: Top 5 Retail Market Integrators

Online shopping is transforming retail. These integrators show the way forward as 2013 CI Industry Leaders.

by Aaron Stern

Between the recession and the transformative rise of e-tail commerce, retail integrators have had to do a lot of adaptation in recent years.

First, the recession hammered the market and the number of new stores opening dropped sharply. Then, as the market was emerging from recession, online shopping morphed from a novelty to a mainstream reality, eating away at in-store retail profits — which integrators naturally depend on.

Despite these challenges, integrators like those listed here are finding a way to thrive in retail.

Residential Systems: Guitar Collector Builds a Rock Star-Infused Basement Lounge with ELAN g! Control

By RS Staff

Guitar aficionado Jack Jackson and his wife Kathleen know how to throw a party–just ask the 80-plus people who attended their 2013 New Year’s bash, held in the new ultra-trendy basement lounge in their Hunterdon County, NJ, home. The Jackson’s “basement” can go toe-to-toe with any posh Manhattan nightclub thanks to its custom built bar, LED lighting accents, lounge area with a wraparound leather sofa, electric fireplace, 120-bottle wine cellar, “pillar of fire” column with drink rests, a smoke machine, and laser lights. But according to Jackson, the icing on this mini nightclub’s cake is something that’s vital for a long night of partying–the room’s lighting, three TVs and two zones of audio are all super easy to control right from an iPad through the ELAN g! entertainment and control system.

Local custom integrator, 360 Media Innovations, installed the ELAN g! system, in-ceiling speakers, wall-mounted TVs, and integrated lighting.

Commercial Integrator: 11 Best Installs Announced in 2013 Integration Awards

Our second annual look at some of the best installs from last year is a chance to marvel at — and learn from — the work of fellow integrators as selected by the editors and writers of Commercial Integrator and TechDecisions.

by CI Staff


Commercial Integrator is all about troubleshooting. A client has a problem or a need, and it’s the integrator’s job to come up with a plan to fill that need. And that’s only half the battle.

Once onsite, any number of problems can arise that require quick thinking and ingenuity to bridge the gap between the best-laid plans and the real world problems that can lead those plans astray. Time in and time out, installers find a way to make it to not only make it work, but to make it exceed customer expectations.

Commercial Integrator: Cake Boss, Elan In Control Of Growing Retail Empire

Baking’s biggest celebrity opens second Carlo’s Bakery in Ridgewood, N.J., the first of several new retail locations to open throughout 2013 and 2014.

by D. Craig MacCormack

When you’re dealing with the self-proclaimed Cake Boss, you know you should take careful notes and not stray from the plan, even if the plan changes on the fly sometimes.

It’s a lesson Abiose and Chima Gale first learned when outfitting celebrity baker Buddy Valastro’s house with an Elan g! control system more than two years ago, and one that was driven home even harder when they decked Valastro’s new cake factory in Jersey City, N.J. with an amped-up Elan control system, iPod docks, and much more in 2011.
